Setup pCloud Sync

Sorry, I am very new to all this and need a little bit of hand holding. I have got the pCloud open in the browser on my Pi. (I also use pCloud with Ubuntu on my main PC and it works really well) I have transferred the Deja Dup back up of my weather data to a pCloud folder. My question is how do I sync my WeatherData folder on my Pi to my pCloud folder. On my PC I can see the icon on my PC and open the GUI. I have a feeling that there is no GUI for the Pi and that the sync has to be done in some work around way. I am not sure where to start. Could somebody please give me a pointer.

Start with the pcloud docs here: https://rclone.org/pcloud/

Get it set up on your main computer first.

Then copy the config file to the Pi: https://rclone.org/remote_setup/#configuring-by-copying-the-config-file

Hopefully that is enough of a hint!

Thanks for that....I have already been through the remote set up.

Where do I go from here?

You then need to use rclone sync to copy the files up.

So something like

rclone sync --dry-run /path/to/WeatherData pcloud:WeatherData

remove --dry-run when happy.

Thanks for that....it seems to have worked.....

...but it has not updated the pCloud folder since the first time I ran that command....does that mean that I have to set up the "rclone sync" command as a daily cron job?

Yes you need to run it whenever you want the sync.
